Successful businesswoman Avery Barrows likes her dips and curves, but she’s sick of the haters telling her that she should be ashamed of her body instead of embracing it. Determined to send them a big f*** you, Avery resolves to cut loose during a girls’ trip, hightailing her quick-mouthed, plus-sized self to New Orleans. So, what’s a smart woman with a little extra gotta do to get laid in this town?
Not much if you ask Declan McGinn, the lead singer of BlackSmith. Tall, dark, and tattooed, with a body made for sin, Declan prefers his women as curvy as his guitars. Avery’s sharp tongue and keen mind makes him want her even more.
As they burn up the sheets, Avery and Declan realize this is no one-night (or even one-week) stand. But for all of her bluster, Avery isn’t sure she can handle any more rejection. Besides, Declan has demons of his own. Now Avery has a choice to make: play it safe, or place her trust in the hands of a man who’s as tempting as the devil himself.
I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review.
Avery is a plus size, career woman, with a strong sense of self. Though she hides who she really is and wants to be in her male dominated field of work. Declan, is the notorious playboy who doesn’t do the “relationship thing”, yet he falls head over heels for Avery and she isn’t far behind him. He encourages her to be who she truly is, both in the bedroom and in everyday life. This book. I truly needed to read this book. I was drawn from the very first page. The passion and the steam Avery Barrows and Declan McGinn have jumps right off every page. You cannot deny the chemistry that these two have. This book was extremely easy to read and great for a one sit read. I cannot be more grateful that I was given this book to review. I’m excited to read more from Tricia Lynne and see what she has in store for future books. Overall it is well written and was very enjoyable to read. I originally gave this a 4.5 review on Netgalley and Goodreads, but after thinking about this more and reading it for a second time I am giving this a very STRONG ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5 stars!!
